Our galaxy is called the Milky way, it’s a very interesting place to watch especially because it contains our solar system and our planet Earth. Here is my version of Milky way which is fun to make and a pleasure to watch.

Step 1: Create Layers
Cut card stock into 6 pieces with the measurement of 4 by 6 inches (or 10 by 15 cm). These will be the 6 layers of your galaxy.
Step 2: Draw and Cut
Draw layers of orbits on your cardstock sheets
and cut them out using an exacto knife. You should puncture the paper using a needle to add detail.
Step 3: Arrange the Layers
Arrange and stack them up on each other and stick them through a double sided tape so that there is space in between each layer.
Step 4: Plug in and Enjoy
Keep it inside a shadowbox frame or a regular frame so that light reflect through it.
Light it up using any blue colored light bulb from behind.
Hope you enjoyed this instructable. A great
learning experience for kids and fun to make at a summer camp.
